re: Oldest son going in today to see the cardiologist - White Roach
All of what Navy Tiger said... I remember doing some pretty stupid shite in HS to make weigh for wrestling and (an ill fated) boxing tournament. Dehydration and/or an electrolyte imbalance can cause an irregular or rapid heartbeat. ...

re: Matthew McConaughey: New Orleans is 'a big, beautiful mess' - White Roach
I've only read the first five pages of this thread, but I feel compelled to make a couple of observations. I was born in NO, grew up in Metairie and lived Uptown when I moved back after college. I've traveled extensively in the U.S. for business and pleasure, lived out of state (CA!!!) and now live ...

re: San Fran deer stand sells for 1.2 mil - White Roach
If you bought at the top of the local real estate market and had a zero down mortgage... All financial markets have some degree of volatility. My point is that San Francisco isn't getting any bigger and the Pacific coastline isn't getting any longer. In the long term, that property value is going...

re: San Fran deer stand sells for 1.2 mil - White Roach
You can either have a view of your pond in North LA for X dollars that is pretty much always going to be worth X dollars, or you can have a view of the Pacific Ocean for a million two, that'll more than likely be worth a million five in a few years. Which one is really the smart investment? ...

If you like the smell of garlic, you don't have to move to all the way Gilroy. Just get seats along the 1st base line in right field at a Giants game! ...

re: Cockpit doors will open upon decompression... - White Roach
My last post was a feeble attempt at humor, but is it really impossible to open an emergency exit or cabin door in flight? This has always been one of the scenarios in my mind where I would start whipping a stranger's ass, no questions asked. But if you're positive that door can't be opened, I think...

re: Cockpit doors will open upon decompression... - White Roach
Does that mean all of the movies I've seen that include explosive decompression scenes, with flight attendants, bad guys, snakes and zombies getting sucked out of the plane are bullshite?!? Hard to believe that Hollywood would lie to me......

re: Cockpit doors will open upon decompression... - White Roach
Well, rather than breaking a window or Hulk smashing a hole in the fuselage, I think I'd pop an emergency exit or open a cabin door. I don't know how simple it would be to do with the pressure differential, but it would have to be easier than putting my fist through the side of a plane. ...

Why do I need to decompress the cabin? We're descending, plus I'm going to be dead in a couple of minutes. ...

re: San Fran deer stand sells for 1.2 mil - White Roach
The overbidding thing is crazy, but it's not a new phenomenon. My sister and BIL bought a house in SF in 2000. I think it was listed at $550,000 and they paid around $800,000 for it. My BIL told me that their overbid (~250,000) was almost what his brother's 5 bedroom house in Raliegh, NC cost. It's ...

re: San Fran deer stand sells for 1.2 mil - White Roach
It sold for $935,000 in 2008. It has an ocean and beach view (nothing is on the water side of the road/highway along there). I know 1.21 million is a shitload of money, but San Francisco isn't getting any bigger. If you want to own a home there, you are going to have to pay for it. ...

re: What the frick is causing traffic on causeway? - White Roach
There are slowdowns at both ends of the bridge during commute hours, but what do people expect? Since I-10 in Metairie has been widened I'm sure traffic has improved, but 10 years ago Mandeville to Metairie was as fast or faster than Kenner to CBD. ...

re: Best time (airlines and hotel) to go to NYC? - White Roach
I also stayed at a place called the Hudson in the west 50s near Columbus Circle once. Nice rooms, but tiny. Only about $125-150 at the time. Rocking bar off of the lobby (c. 2009), but a Crown & water was about 12 bucks. In their defense, I'm not sure what kind of water it was. Might have been some ...

re: Best time (airlines and hotel) to go to NYC? - White Roach
I stayed at the Grand Hyatt (on 42nd St., I think.) a few years ago. It's right next door to Grand Central Terminal, so you're centrally located with easy access to subways, trains and cabs. It's not super cheap, but was very reasonable for NYC. It might be worth checking into. It was 4th of July...

re: Is hazing in the military common? - White Roach
I once had a neighbor who was Coast Guard. Somehow or another, we got onto the topic of hazing. He was a funny guy and told this hysterical story about "calibrating the radar" while dockside. I can't do it justice, but the basic gist was that they'd get a gullible newbie and wrap him with aluminum f...
